The inaugural Alternative Expeditionary Learning Semester finished in December 2020. Details on future educational programs are coming soon!
In fall 2020, Maine Maritime Museum launched a special semester-long educational experience for sixth and seventh-graders. This interdisciplinary program was limited to a pod of only 15 students and classes were held outdoors in the museum’s historic shipyard for the majority of the semester.
The interdisciplinary curriculum, developed in collaboration with a Maine state certified teacher, followed state standards in math, science, ELA, and social studies, while fostering pride of place with a focus on maritime history and culture, arts, and traditional shipyard skills.
